«This has been one of the most complex transactions in which Optimus has successfully advised. The difficulty lay in finding the fine balance between the financial and office space needs of Duro Felguera in the scope of its global refinancing program and the investment requirements of Signal Capital Partners. It allows Duro Felguera to divest its nonstrategic assets and at the same time helps Signal meet its risk-adjusted return targets», Kris Van Lancker, Managing Director at Optimus Global Investors, commented.
